An essential oil is a concentrated hydrophobic liquid containing chemical compounds extracted from plants. Essential oils are usually obtained by distillation, often but not always, by steam. There are other ways to extract the oil. Improper use of essential oils may cause harm including allergic reactions and skin irritation, so care must always be taken*
Please note that most essential oils need to be mixed with a carrier oil (like Almond oil) before applying to the skin. Always wash hands after using undiluted essential oil.
Avena oils are all high quality full strength oils. Some of the fragrances are delicate and subtle whereas others are strong and very powerful.
